D. ancient Mesopotamia’s pottery and shrines and Neolithic cultures such as Anatolia, Assyria, and Iran
E. the pottery and shrines of ancient Mesopotamia and Anatolia, Assyria, and Iran, Neolithic cultures

Question Explanation:


Since the underlined portion of the sentence contains several nouns, check whether those nouns are consistent with each other and with the rest of the sentence. As written, this sentence compares pottery and shrines to Neolithic cultures. Since these are not like items, this is a comparison error, so eliminate choice A and look for any obvious repeaters. There are no obvious repeaters, so evaluate the remaining answer choices individually, looking for reasons to eliminate each.

Choice B correctly compares pottery and shrines to pottery and shrines but creates the construction between…with, an incorrect form of the idiom between…and, so eliminate choice B. Choice C correctly compares pottery and shrines to those (a pronoun representing pottery and shrines), and introduces no new errors, so keep choice C. Choice D incorrectly compares pottery and shrines to Neolithic cultures, so eliminate choice D. Choice E incorrectly compares pottery and shrines to Anatolia, Assyria, and Iran, so eliminate choice E.

Choice A: No. Pottery and shrines cannot be compared with Neolithic cultures. Comparison.

Choice B: No. Between…with is an incorrect form of the idiom between…and. Idiom.

Choice C: Correct

Choice D: No. Pottery and shrines cannot be compared with Neolithic cultures. Comparison.

Choice E: No. Pottery and shrines cannot be compared with Anatolia, Assyria, and Iran. Comparison.

The correct answer is choice C.
